Introduction- Again

 
I believe that a re-introduction is in order, just the key facts...
 
Melanie, working toward age 40, current goal is to avoid buying bigger pants through a RESTART! I set 18 to-do's for 2018, some easy, some take more effort, all attainable when I set my mind and heart to success.
 
We have 3 kids ranging from age 12 to 4:
  • Kiddo #1 plays hoops, this time of year you will find me in a gym. To be honest I am a HORRIBLE sports parent and currently beating myself up for it. I want to be better and I will be!
  • Kiddo #2 is a sweet kind soul who is finding his way in the world. My goal this year is to help him find his passion and an outlet for his amazing imagination
  • Kiddo #3 is a feisty little lady who keeps us on our toes. She is the definition of sweet and sour.  My total mini me with dimples for days. She will start Kindergarten in the Fall so we are in major teaching mode.
We have a Bo-Jack (Boston / Jack Russell Mix) puppy named Rey (Like from Star Wars) who will be 1 in April.  She has a lot of energy but has been a great addition to our busy household. 
 
Married to my handsome hubby, we are building our dream home which closes in June.  Our new place is 5 houses down for a trail through the woods, our happy place!! Our weekends will consist of getting our current home ready to sell, and looking for unique items for our new place.
 
I love to run but cant remember the last time I hit the pavement. I know for sure I will run Rainier to Ruston first weekend in June with 5 of my BRF's (Best Running Friends)
 
I love to write and have the beginnings of a song, novel and children's book series, one of which I WILL finish this year.
 
I love to shop, Goodwill, Nordstrom Rack, Marshalls, Target and Garage sales are my main obsessions.
 
I work in an office and sit 83% of my day, key career passions are communication, engagement, and positive development.
 
My favorite quote is "Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do." John Wooden  

 That's me!!  If you have a minute please re-introduce yourself in whatever way is fun for you!

Happy Monday!

So glad your blog is back!!!! It popped up in my Feedly feed. I’m Lindsey another tall runner and mom. I’m 5’10”, mom to a super smart and sassy five year old girl who is in kinder, and a super sweet nine month old baby boy. We recently moved to Central Oregon and bought our first home! I’m trying to find my running groove again after having baby and moving away from my running buddy. I work from home part time as an English as a second language teacher to students from China. I’m excited to hear about your new home and your return to running!!

Also happy to see your blog back. I was an avid reader before and kept you on my blog feed. I am so glad I didn't take it off because I wouldn't have known about your re-start! I am a mom of 2 and am a ex-volleyball player turned runner. I happen to coach cross country, but am no expert! Excited to see what 2018 brings for you.

تعتبر عمليه التخلص من الحشرات ومكافحة القوارض بأشكالها وأنواعها المختلفه ليست عمليه جماليه أو عمليه يمكن أن تتم بشكل ثانوى ولكنها عمليه أساسية لابد أن تتم فى وقتها من أجل التخلص من انتشار الحشرات بشكل كبير
